  5. AOS is pleased to announce up to three new fellowships of $15,000 each for ornithological research. These fellowships have been made possible through a generous bequest by Dr. Brina Kessel and are directed to early career scientists. The full range of ornithological research currently published in peer-reviewed journals, such as studies avian biology, ecology, behavior, conservation, genetics, interdisciplinary work, etc. can be supported. Poultry and agricultural research will not be considered. Eligibility Applicants must be a current member of AOS if a resident or current postdoc in the U.S. or Canada, or a current member of another regional ornithological society if a resident outside the U.S. or Canada. Kessel Fellowships are open to early-career researchers. This includes current PhD students who will have completed their PhD when the grant is awarded and those who have received their PhDs within ten years of the grant submission date (an extra year of eligibility may be granted for parental leave). The committee will consider the record of membership and participation in AOS for North American applicants and contributions to ornithology and participation in other ornithological societies for applicants from outside North America. Applicants may not have received a Kessel Fellowship award previously. A PI may not hold or have held U.S., Canadian, or other federal grant support or university/institutional start-up funds intended for research at the time of their application for this grant. The goal is to provide critical funding to those early career ornithologist who do not have access to other significant funds. A PI may apply for only one AOS research award (Kessel or Student & Postdoc Research Awards) in a year, and hold only one award at a time. AOS members who have received other research funding from the Society may re-apply as long as they meet eligibility requirements and post-funding requirements (see below). Grants will be awarded to a single PI (i.e. these are not collaborative grants), although collaborators can be named in grant. The AOS will only award grant money to a single person, not multiple PIs listed on the same grant.
  6. The American Ornithological Society is honored to announce that we are accepting applications for the new Kessel Research Fellowship Program. Dr. Brina Kessel, an eminent ornithologist, pioneering woman in science, and the 45th president of the Society (1992–1994), created an unparalleled legacy to sustain the future of ornithology through her generous bequest to AOS. In recognition of her legacy, the society established the Kessel Research Fellowship Program, a small grants program designed to build capacity for the next generation of ornithologists by supporting individual research projects that represent the full range of ornithological research: avian biology, ecology, behavior, conservation, genetics, interdisciplinary, etc. Collectively, the professionals receiving Kessel research grants will become valued ambassadors for ornithology, representing the broad scientific fields of the discipline and geographic areas across the globe. In its inaugural year, the Kessel Research Fellowship Program will offer up to three $15,000 Awards. Eligibility: Applicants must be a current member of AOS if a resident or current postdoc in the U.S. or Canada, or a current member of another regional ornithological society if a resident outside the U.S. or Canada. Applicants must have received a doctorate degree within ten years of the grant submission date. (An extra year of eligibility may be granted for parental leave.) Applicants must be applying as a single PI (although scientific collaborators can be named in the grant application). The AOS will only award grant money to a single person, not multiple PIs listed on the same grant. Applicants may not have received a Kessel Fellowship award previously and may only hold one AOS research award (including Student & Postdoc Research Awards) at a time. Applicants may not hold or have held U.S., Canadian, or other federal grant support or university start-up funds intended for research at the time of the submission date. For complete details, including full eligibility requirements and application instructions, visit the award page on the AOS website. Applications are due 15 January 2020. We look forward to reviewing the submitted proposals and to continuing the legacy of Dr. Brina Kessel through this exciting new program.

  8. VISITING SCHOLARS at ARCHBOLD BIOLOGICAL STATION Goals for grants-in-aid of research for visiting scholars: 1. Increase the number and diversity of graduate students and postdoctoral scientists conducting fieldwork at Archbold (including the Station, Reserve and Buck Island Ranch). 2. Provide each awardee (2 per year) with a modest financial incentive ($2,000) to defray research-related expenses. 3. Celebrate our appreciation for the value of student and postdoc field research at Archbold. Qualifications: Applicants should already be enrolled in a graduate program or appointed as a postdoctoral scientist and studying in any area of field biology. The proposed work must involve field research conducted at Archbold (including the Station, Reserve or Buck Island Ranch) and/or the immediate area and include at least 4 weeks (cumulative over one year) based on-site at Archbold, as both they and other researchers and students benefit from such interaction. Administration: Awardees will be chosen by the senior scientific staff based on the scientific merit of the application and benefit to Archbold science. Each awardee should have a sponsor on the scientific staff. Applicants are encouraged to speak with staff before submitting a proposal. Applicants are to submit a short (maximum 2 page) proposal for field work at Archbold; this might be attached to a longer description of the graduate or postdoc research project. The application should: describe the proposed research; make the case for fieldwork at Archbold; include a list of facilities, equipment and field sites needed to complete the research; and provide a brief budget. Award funds may be used to offset e.g. travel, supplies, food and lodging costs, other field-related expenses, or a stipend. Archbold facility use fees are waived but scholars are responsible for covering the cost of lodging at Archbold if utilized. Applicants can elect to either receive the funds directly (which will generate a 1099 tax form) or establish an account at Archbold to cover non-stipend research expenses. Application materials should be emailed to shawkins@archbold-station.org with the subject line Archbold Visiting Scholar. Applicants should also request a letter of reference from their major professor or a faculty member familiar with their research to be emailed to shawkins@archbold-station.org with the subject line Archbold Visiting Scholar Letter of Reference NAME.
